The car in the video has a micro edf inrunner motor on 4s just to see what it went like.
My car I run on a carpet track (due to constant rain in the uk) runs on 4.5 trinity d3.5 on 2s with a tekin pro with boost which is plenty fast enough.
Most clubs run the 200mm "world gt" spec which is 1s 10.5t boosted with the liliac control tyre.

Then we also run a gt12 class which is a 1/12th version on 1s 13.5 blinky with the chassis cost controlled.

I'd advertise for a 2nd hand one and see what pops up. My recommendations are X-Ray or CRC. Both are proven on the track.
The 10R5 is good, but requires some mods for Lipo.
If you haven't raced anything like it before, buy something that an experienced racer has at the track. They take some time and patience to set up and run right, so it's always great to have some help at the track.
Also, they are 90% tire selection. Run what the other locals are running to save some pain :)

Haha that looks like an awesome car Bushy :lol: :lol:

Worst it had was ate a couple of cats eyes the last time it ran, was the Nationals at Manawatu... plus took it in the rear hence a new axle supplied :shock:

Hmmm yes, the world famous cats-eyes. I did my bit for pan-kind by removing one cleanly using a subtle combination of speed, accuracy and a Team Associated carbon front bumper. unfortunately the bumper is no longer with us but the memory of it's selfless act lives on...

The crc is the car I run. A lot of people rate the new associated car though.
Xray is the best quality by a fair margin.
Spares availability and what the more experienced guys at your club are running would be my things to consider.
The hobbyking car isn't too bad, you do need to throw the kit front end away and fit an associated/crc front end and its a competitive car. The one I saw run had a crc rear axle in it also due to the stock hubs/axles not being able to take the four bolt rear wheels.

Replace the front, middle and rear of the hobbyking, then it's a good car! :lol:

Lol if you have the parts laying around or can tap up someone who does it would be ok.
I had my first taste of m chassis on Sunday when the Stephens lads let me have ago with theirs and it was awesome fun. (Green mini)

lol I know exactly what you mean, I was only going to blat round before everyone got there as was my first time on the track properly, then when we got there it was covered with kids on bikes and stuff so that idea went out the window haha, still had an awesome day out there learning as I went.

Had a couple teething issues with the iPod dock on the controller, but got it sorted and working well :D
